Satisfied Customers

"Friendly, professional, helpful, they didn’t try to sell me stuff I didn’t need. The installers were lovely, respectful, friendly, cleared up after themselves, and were a pleasure to have here. Would definitely recommend them although they could do with some singing lessons!!!"

L Tapscott (Gloucester) - Aug'21

"I cannot fault the fitting of the windows and door even though they had to be fitted at different times. Josh the fitter was great and what ever you pay him is not enough. Not only is his work top notch but he is a lovely person too. He cleared up after himself and was respectful to the fact I was having to work from home."
